When most people hear the name Pillsbury, they immediately think of luscious, irresistible desserts. For more than 125 years, the Pillsbury Company has been providing Americans with the best foods, and now they proudly present their extensive collection of exceptional dessert recipes. Pillsbury: Best Desserts has a dish for every sweet tooth, from Golden Pecan Pie to Apple Raspberry Cobbler to Pumpkin Cheesekcake with Praline Sauce to Banana Brownie Split Sundae.
The Pillsbury cookbooks are classics because they provide more than just great recipes--they are valuable sources of cooking and baking information. The first chapter of Pillsbury: Best Desserts, Desserts Basics, provides a thorough introduction to making perfect desserts, including general information about common equipment and ingredients, as well as more specific information, such as how to test a cheesecake for doneness and how to distinguish a cobbler from a crisp or a crumble.
